Happy to get my first 8a even if it was a tad soft. Nice boulder problem at the top

Really good condition today felt good!

3rd go, nearly flashed. good!

Ramon Marin 21/Apr/13 Lead rpt

Great route, did it today in a day, but I've done the bottom half a bunch of times, still, almost fell off the bottom part on my sent. I use different beta than everyone elses, which made it feel more like 7c+ than 8a.

more 7c+ than 8a

quiffhanger 15/Jan/12 Lead RP

Took a while. Avoided the massive ledge for hands-possibly 8a this way: need to do a few more to be sure! Def the hardest route I've done @ Brean to date.

westyb3 04/Dec/11 Lead RP

A tad soft,
